Bubblegum Lemonade - Some Like It Pop
Label: Matinee Recordings
Format: CD


First-rate indie pop on third album from Glasgow-based band, Bubblegum Lemonade

'Some Like It Pop' is the third album by the Glasgow-based indie pop band Bubblegum Lemonade, which is fronted by Laz McCluskey. It consists of songs that he has written over the last two years. The front cover of 'Some Like It Pop' is a spoof sleeve of the Velvet Underground's debut album, this time using a plastic damaged lemonade bottle rather than a banana. Get it? It features twelve numbers of mostly Rickenbacker-infused tales of love and shyness, and hints at My Bloody Valentine, the Stone Roses, the Buzzcocks, and also a calmer Wedding Present. All are textured with that familiar jingle jangle we have come to expect from the band. None of the twelve nuggets that make up this album last more than three minutes, except for the last song 'Mr. Dreaming's Bland House' which hits the four minute mark. This is a lovely album. You could do a lot worse than put this in someone's Christmas stocking.
